Cargo (2018)



Critic Consensus: Cargo takes a refreshingly character-driven approach to the zombie genre that's further distinguished by its Australian setting and Martin Freeman's terrific lead performance.

Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay it is that I think George A. Romero himself would have liked it.

Been there, undead that.

Co-directors Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke (the latter of whom wrote the screenplay) sacrifice some tension with their more character-based approach, but the cumulative effect is emotionally powerful.

May 16, 2018 | Full Review…

The Australian setting brings a fresh, and epic, quality to this now done-to-death genre, and the directors introduce a few nice new kinks to the zombie mythology.

May 14, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

From Romero's original zombie series to the films it inspired, this type of horror succeeds when it laces its scares with biting social commentary, and Cargo utilizes this formula to great success.

May 9, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

This familiar saga eschews jolting scares for survival-esque (and dark-heart-of-man) thrills, relying largely on Freeman's compelling lead turn to set it apart from the genre.
